Scuba Diving and Snorkelling Holidays in Koh Phi Phi

 

Ideal for: Singles, couples and families of all diving abilities

koh-phi-phi-beachThe Phi Phi archipelago consists of 6 small islands south east of Phuket in the Andaman Sea. The largest island, Phi Phi Don, is the only inhabited island and offers a wide range of accommodation from dorms to 5* resorts.  The islands are some of the most picturesque in the world, with sheer limestone cliffs, warm clear waters and jungle vegetation. Underwater, the life explodes with a huge variety of corals, sponges, sea fans and fantastic reef life with regular sightings of Black Tip Reef Sharks, Leopard Sharks, Hawksbill Turtles, Sea Horses, Pipefish, Shrimps, reef fish and even the occasional passing Whale Shark or Manta Ray. Since being devastated by the tsunami, the islands have been rebuilt and are now a popular destination for divers, holidaymakers and travellers.  While some of the rustic charm has been lost with the new developments, the beauty of the islands is undeniable and there is plenty to keep non-divers occupies with snorkel trips, island hopping, rock climbing and more.

Highlights

  • Bida Nok and Bida Nai are two small islands just south of Phi Phi Leh with astonishing reef life, swim-throughs and generally easy conditions and a great chance of Black Tip Reef Sharks, Seahorses, Pipefish and Hawksbill Turtles.
  • Palong and Malong are dive sites off Phi Phi Leh with fantastic chances of seeing sharks and turtles.
  • Anemone Reef, Shark Point Phuket and the King Cruiser Wreck are usually visited in a 3-dive day as they are close together and have some of the best diving in the area. Anemone Reef is, as its name suggests covered in colourful anemones and corals with fantastic reef life including Leopard Sharks, Moray Eels including Giant, Zebra, Honeycomb, White Eye and Yellow Margined.
  • The King Cruiser wreck is a large car ferry sunk in 1997 that sits between 10-32m and is now teeming with life including Lionfish, Scorpionfish, Moray Eels and more. Shark Point Phuket is three submerged pinnacles with the largest just breaking the surface. It is full of life and colour, with chances of seeing Hawksbill Turtles, Leopard Sharks, Moray Eels, Sea Snakes and much more.
